CORY STRAND "PARIS, DO YOU SPEAK FRENCH?" 4CDr + 2 DATA DVD-r BOX SET (AOW 147)
"Paris, Do You Speak French?" is my massive engulfing rework of Ms. Hilton's sublime 2013 "comeback" single "Good Time," a song that has grown on me over many, many repeated listenings despite its utter vapidity and inanity-just listen to Lil' Wayne's verse and you'll see what I mean. In some ways the song is absolutely amazing because it gives the listening public en masse exactly what it demands, but for whatever reason, the single sort of flopped, leaving Paris exactly where she was before-indifferent amidst piles of cash, drugs, and torrid demeaning sex with celebrities. For me, for reasons that are increasingly difficult to explain to people, I find Paris' musical output to be of significant cultural importance. This release is my attempt to expand on that idea, as well as to explore new avenues of harsh and beautiful sounds-HNW, ambient, blurgaze, my washed-out remixes, and cold stagnant drones are all well-represented here. I am still a little amazed at the amount of material i was able to create out of a 3 minute track.
